Latest Developments

Lots to talk about...

LBT have recently been awarded Grants for the Arts funding by Arts Council England, East Midlands to pursue the creation of a series of new works including a re-working of highly acclaimed public sited work Model Citizen, including a gallery version.

'For Amusement Only' is a new installation and interactive digital work that is a phase 1 development of ongoing support from NTI (New Technologies Initiative). This work will premiere on 31st July 2006 at Short Street (Leicester Haymarket Theatre rehearsal rooms), Leicester. This phase will be followed by a series of new works in 2007.

Low Brow Trash have been awarded as winners of a competition at a recent NTI conference for 'Showcasing the application for emerging technologies in the East Midlands.'

Commissioned by Phoenix Digital, Leicester, Low Brow Trash will be creating Genuine Old School Schedule Information Point, for the foyer area of LCB Depot to open 29th September and will run for the first two weeks of October. The work emulates the sight and sound of the 'flicker' type info boards, often used in railway stations, but using new technology to re-create the effect.

TAG has been selected by Q arts/Quad, Derby, and HTTP Gallery, London to be part of 'Game Play', a touring exhibition that explores new digital and computer based artwork. The opening at Q in Derby will be 22nd July and will run for seven weeks. The exhibition will then tour to a number of venues in 2007/8.

Look out for further updates and project descriptions for 'rEvolve' - LBT in collaboration with pyrotechnic/sculptural artists Spoke in the Wheel, which resulted in a spectacular event for Nottingham's bonfire night 2005 and 'Suddenly the magic shopkeeper appeared...' the short film for Nanoplex, the touring caravan/media centre.

Low Brow Trash have been very busy recently with a number of education and workshop projects including a digital dance project with APT called 'StereoHype', a film and dance project with young people from one of Nottingham's YiP groups, digital animation work for the new Broxtowe Community Centre, working with young people from the estate, RETRO, funded through Heritage Lottery Young Roots, with Nottingham YOT, and a number of smaller projects such as training for Arts and Business, working with schools, training for the NHS and working with students at De Montfort University.
